<<<Updated Sept 8, 2020 >>>
After much consideration, after having a fully-booked group, taking everything into account, feeling into the energy under which this event that Elaine & I both love sharing would the operating, and given the risk that things could still change what and how we are able to do this week (i.e to respect the changing laws/guidelines in the UK), we have took the decision to cancel the in-person live event.
Through this process what has arisen is our decision to offer a 4-day online Master Your Pleasure (Oct 15 - Oct 18) journey, an adaptation of the flow, syllabus & content of the week long journey.
Inviting you to join us. Welcoming You <3

Bynoi Desouza – Support Facilitator
I'm an International Educator and Facilitator. I grew up in India & lived there till the age of 23. I have spent the last 15 years living in different parts of Europe (Belgium, Sweden & UK), Asia, & South America and speak 6+ languages.
I’m also a Speaker, BodyWorker, Artist, & Mentor; a Classical Non-Dual Tantrik Native Scholar & Practitioner; Somatic Sexual Educator; Embodiment Guide & Practitioner (Esoteric, Sexual Shamanic, & Taoist Internal Arts modalities).
I’m passionate about the transformative capacity of embodied self-inquiry to profoundly affect the interbeing of the human condition. Exploring the liminal spaces of the human condition bringing resistance into resonance, honoring the beauty in decay, and finding wisdom in nature’s forms. Engaging with multi-dimensional embodiment itself as study, student & inner guide.
Diverse embodied fields, often in source language (Classical Non-Dual Tantrik traditions; Somatic Sexology; Trauma-informed Neuro-Transformative Embodiment; Nervous System Health, Dance, & Movement; Shamanic & Soul Awareness; Mystery Traditions, Temple Arts, & Taoist Internal Arts) inform my approach, spiral of enquiry, and work.
I look forward to walking the path alongside you, if you feel drawn too.

<<<What experience are we offering you?>>>

This container will move you through the many different forms and intensities of pleasure so that your mind, body and soul can reset, rewire, learn or re learn what pleasure is for you and how it feels.

The week will take you to meet your current pleasure limit or pleasure ceiling, Supporting you to expand your capacity to hold and experience pleasure in all its forms for prolonged time and you will know how to effectively reconnect to pleasure when you move away from it, when something external in life takes you out of it, when you forget, shut down or feel fear.
You will then take this new reality back into your everyday life, with a deep reference point in your being and body as to what pleasure is for you.
You will understand and appreciate how crucial this is to your well-being and therefore you will give it attention and priority.
You will be confident in understanding and speaking out your boundaries and therefore you will be more willing to allow it.
Our ability to experience, feel and receive pleasure is an essential nurturing aspect of living life as a human being.
Pleasure can be gained from our intimate and casual relationships with others, our work, food, sports, hobbies, passions in life, dancing, music, singing, touch, sexuality and relaxation.
Pleasure keeps us engaged in life, it keeps us young and healthy and it changes the state of our mental and physical well-being.
Pleasure floods our systems with happy and healing hormones and other substances.
Pleasure is medicine for the body, mind and soul.
<<<Why do I need to learn how to feel pleasure. Shouldn’t that come naturally to me?>>>
We are born with a wonderful natural sense of innocence and pleasure. For many of us sadly the experiences we have in life move us away from pleasure.
We may judge it as wrong, we are afraid of it, others judge or disapprove when we express pleasure, my church, family or culture tells me its wrong, we are punished for feeling pleasure, and we sometimes are dramatically disconnected from or forget/block out how to feel pleasure.
We therefore need to learn or relearn how to allow, invite and welcome pleasure back into our life
<<<Is this experiential intensive for singles or couples?>>>
This experiential intensive is suitable for singles, couples including those of all genders and all sexual orientations. Couples if you wish to attend you can work with your partner only or choose to work with others.
